3M Hooks?

Is it possible to put 3m hooks on the "carpet like" walls of fiberglass campers?

I personally would not use these hooks on the marine fabric. The core weave/threads of the material would weaken and there goes your coffee mug or what have you, dangling by a thread. Not enough substrate to adhere to. Furthermore, I wouldn't want to thin out or otherwise cause a bare area in the marine fabric from the repeated stress of trying to hold something up.

I have those hooks on my fridge door and find that suction cup hooks have worked well on FG interior for other little doo dads.

If you are not trying to support something heavy, try using the clips/hooks designed for office cubicles. They have 2 straight pin like 'hooks' that pierce through the rat/fur and underlying insulation. We used a variety of them successfully in a previous Scamp.
Check out:

and the Fellowes Partition Additions...look for the ones with the 'viper pin' attachment.

Rat fur (Scamp) or marine carpet (Casita) or Ensolite (Boler) are walls not intended to hold stuff! For every post I've ever read about wanting to hang stuff on the walls, there's another post about glueing back the (whatever). If you MUST hang stuff, find a cabinet, you'll be safer long term.

These all molded towabe trailers are NOT your sticks 'n bricks home. There are no "walls."
